School administrators all across the country have been noticing that students have been missing too many school days. Because of this occurrence, they needed a solution to their truancy problem. One of the solutions they thought of was to take away the truant student’s driver's license. However, some people believe that school should not have anything to do with licenses.

Housing Issues and its Effect on Prisoner Reentry Erika Kemp Temple University In 2002, there were approximately 1,600 inmates a day being released back into society through parole or completion of sentence (Petersilia, 2003). Correctional facilities have to have a plan to transition inmates back into society. Prisoner reentry is defined by Joan Petersilia in When Prisoners Come Home (2003) as, “all activities and programming conducted to prepare ex-convicts to return safely to the community and to live as law-abiding citizens. Prisoners reentering society today are more likely to have issues such as, previous failed attempts at parole, failed or lack of participation in prison programs designed to make transition easier, and to have served longer sentences, which affects the relationship to families and other legitimate groups in society. The number of prisoners released each year has increased over the years, but their growth rates are declining (Lynch & Sabol, 2001).
One of the main reasons I have chosen to ho back t school is my family and their well-being. I feel like if I go to school and get an education then I can take care of them the way I need to take care of them. I feel like going back to school will have many good advantages as well as some disadvantages . Some good things is that I will be furthering my education and in the world we live in it’s almost required.

English 4 Service Learning Proposal For my service learning project, I plan to work with children by helping them through social and educational interactions. My service is needed because many children do not have someone to help them do homework and to develop much needed life skills due to many different situations. Learning Disabilities affects 15-20% of the U.S. Population. There are about 7 billion people in the world so 15 percent of that is 1,050,000,000. Imagine how many of that percentage is in our local community.
In 2001, that number had grown to about 1.7 million. (Teen Scene) This number could have grown for many personal or non personal reasons, but what I feel about home schooled being a positive situation, is that the student doing this type of education, can learn time management, self motivation, and independence for themselves in the future. It could help them be able to grow up and learn things on their own and to be more independent for themselves. They could also feel more comfortable around their people during home school, rather then feeling uncomfortable arounds strangers in a public school or the fear of not getting along with anyone. Being around people that we know, makes us feel more comfortable in the environment that we could be in.

Being more educated with such a larger way of thinking could help me be a more independent person also a self-starter instead of a follower. Another quote that someone told me was by Oscar Wilde (Berdichevsky) “You can never be over dressed or over educated.” You can never be over educated to me means that you can always add to your education. If you have an Associates degree you can always go to Bachelors degree and even higher.
Suspension and Expulsion are not of use to improve our schools! Suspensions and expulsions are both disciplines that are given to students for their disruptive behaviors and actions. Even our own principal in our school disagrees; suspension and expulsion should be used. (Dale) Suspension and expulsion are not the solution to the problem because too much of these two can lead to dropout rates, it causes negative behavior to students, suspension and expulsion can stop future crimes and learn from their actions and students are not learning properly and not gaining any benefit from their education. Suspension and expulsion is not an effective tool and solution in our schools because it can lead to dropout rates and other violent crimes in the future.
Despite the disagreements, strict disciplinary actions need to be enforced in schools to avoid bullying; because, it disrupts the learning environment, causes future disadvantages, and makes the victims become emotionally unstable. To begin with, not having strict disciplinary actions enforced in schools causes bullying to disrupt the learning environment. For example, victims of bullying find it impossible to concentrate in class while their bully is distracting them: This shows that not having strict disciplinary actions enforced in school could make many victims of bullying adapt school phobia. Additionally, fights in school that both the bully, and victim engages in diverts both of them from their learning process; this demonstrates, not having strict disciplinary actions in school is not only disruptive, but also dangerous. Lastly, constant fights, suspensions, or lack of the ability to cooperate in school with other students, makes it hard for bullies to apply for other schools due to their behavioral issues.
